Overview

Creuse Cottage Rental Photos and Description

An exceptional natural landscape, a relaxing stay guaranteed, a good surprise!

A magical environment, countryside just like in children's books. The gites have a clear view on the Etang des Portes (far enough for the security of the youngest of our renters) and our site is 100% guaranteed without cars (the luggage transfer from the reception is done with our luggage-rack wheelbarrows!).

On site, there is our heated swimming pool (13x6 m), our numerous outdoor games (petanque ground, volleyball, ping-pong table, badminton, swings, turnball, etc.), the hiking trails, the horse-riding centre nearby, the fishing pond, geocaching but also the hammocks and the deckchairs for well-deserved relax

ation moments!

Our site is also a friendly place where we like sharing with you our love for this region, our favourite walks with a few welcoming drinks at the beginning of the stay or a local products' tasting under our covered playground/summer kitchen.

The Creuse?: The Creuse is a nice preserved French department located between the Auvergne and the Limousin, it is green, with hedge farmlands, with forests but what mainly surprises people is the variety of its landscapes. Water is everywhere, ponds, lakes and rivers bordering nice little countryside roads where it is not rare to cross some farm animals.

If Aubusson, the world's tapestry capital is a must-see, there are numerous other sites to be discovered here, from the Villemonteix Castle, through the Chambon/Voueize Abbey, from the natural reserve of 'Etang des Landes' to the the marvelous site of 'Pierre Jaumâtres' or the Sermur Tower at the hanging bridge crossing the Cher river.

Then, there is stone, this granite architecture, made by Creuse œbricklayers that makes our villages look so typical. Our guests coming from the West of France always tell us that Creuse, is the Inner Britanny of 20 years ago!

Activities and animations for all: The Wolves Park, The giant labyrinth of the Guéret Mounts, farm visits, excursions in the middle of nature, children special animations for families, many of you are pleasantly surprises by the number of excursions and visits possibilities.

Then, each season brings its own theme, the blooming countryside in spring, the light green and the lights of June, the beautiful days and the temperate nights of summer, the Autumn colours, etc.

There is so much to be said, it would be much better if you came discover it!

Une belle découverte

  • 5 of 5

Il faut quelques jours pour s'habituer au rythme creusois, lent et contemplatif ! Mais après cette période d'adaptation, c'est la relâche totale, une belle convivialité, l'impression d'être accueillis dans une nouvelle grande famille ! Le gîte de l’Étang des Portes ouvrira vos chakras!

Un Week-End Inoubliable !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avions loué le hameau tout entier pour fêter des anniversaires entre famille & amis (nous étions 70) et le site a fait l'hunanimité ! Sous un beau soleil, nous avons pu nous baigner dans la piscine chauffé, admirer le paysage avec son étang, profiter des aires de jeux, du beau préau, du barbecue géant et de la petite cuisine bien pratique, les gîtes sont très propres et bien équipés, la literie parfaite, et l'accueil des propriétaires très chaleureux. Bref, un endroit paradisiaque ! Avant de partir, tous nous invités nous ont réclamé l'adresse...

Séjour de rêves

  • 5 of 5

Excellents souvenirs de ce séjour passé à l'Etang des Portes. Le site, le cadre, l'ambiance, les gens... Tout était super ! Nous ne devions rester que 2 semaines et tellement que nous y étions bien, nous avons prolongé notre séjour d'une semaine supplémentaire ! Un lieu vraiment idéal et serein pour toute la famille ! Qu'on se le dise !
